C-BOG: My Favorite Things

In his off-beat commentary known as Conner’s Burnt Orange Glasses, Jeff Conner regales us with a song that highlights the things in college football that make us smile, even when the Horns are holding two losses.
To the tune of “My Favorite Things”

from “The Sound of Music.”

Baylor and T Tech are playing in Dallas

More empty seats than Saddam’s

largest palace

Tubberville’s onside kick makes the

Bears sing

These are a few of my favorite things

Preseason, Aggies were talking ‘bout


Their QB Jerrod, he is such a nice man

Nine interceptions, the losses they


These are a few of my favorite things

When my Horns lose

When my foul mood

Seems to weigh me down

I simply remember my fav-o-rite things

Then Greg Davis ain’t a clown!

Urban goes rural; his offense is


Saban loses big – Will he soon be


Les Miles is trickier than Halloween

Plus, Georgia won – it’s my

favorite things

Lane Kiffen loses on last second field


VY beats Dallas in Jerryworld’s


Brett Favre sends photos of wangs to

his flings

These are a few of my favorite things

When Nebraska

Comes to task ya

When it’s three-loss sad

I simply remember my fav-o-rite things

And then I don’t feel so bad!
